Advent Calendar - Day 7

Christmas Movie

Rudolf the Red Nosed Reindeer is one of my all-time favorite Christmas movies. It's just not Christmas until you watch this classic.

Advent Calendar - Day 5

Candy Cane Reindeer

Always a classic. I used to make these every year as a kid.

Advent Calendar - Day 4

Shaving Cream Snowman

Idea from mollie's mom

I really hope my kids like these as much as the website suggested kids do. I think I may have overfilled my snowmen and it is hard to see the noses, so we'll have to see how the kids react.

Advent Calendar - Day 3

Pez Dispensers

I chose not to include Anwyn on the Pez dispensers for the small choking factor. I gave her another chocolate treat instead.

Advent Calendar - Day 2

Decorate the Christmas Tree

This is my first year to have an artificial tree. As much as I love the smell and nostalgia of a real tree, I decided to switch this year because my kids want to put up the tree earlier then I usually do (I usually wait until December 15th or so) and my beautiful western ornaments are quite heavy and weigh down the branches too much and too many were getting broken when they fell off the tree. So "Cheers!" to new traditions!

Advent Calendar - Day 1

Merry Christmas! I just love this time of year. I am so excited now that my kids are a little older that they are also look forward to the holidays. This year I decided that I was going to have an Advent Calendar to count down the days until Christmas. Despite my best intentions to have my wall hanging Advent Calendar completed by December 1, that didn't happen, so for this year I'm having to improvise. I decided to go with a rustic, paper bag kinda theme and to include treats and experiences. Come back every day to see what we are up to each day.
Hope you enjoy counting down the days to Christmas with us!
